Official description

New Kaineng City[1] (New Emperor's City in Old Canthan) is a megalopolis located in Cantha, and belongs to the Empire of the Dragon. The city has many tall buildings and canals, allowing navigation by water via skiffs, and across jade tech Zip Lines that lead to the upper or lower levels of the city. It is where the main headquarters of the Ministries of Cantha are located, and the Xunlai Jade organization.

The Jade Monument at the western end of the city is a monument to Soo-Won, and was made in honor of her for saving Cantha from the tsunami caused by the Zhaitan Disaster.

Interactive map[edit]

Getting around[edit]

New Kaineng City features a challenging environment for navigation because of the large differences in heights. There are very few area where there are multiple levels at the same location but getting from point A to B may require walking around building while using a Springer or skyscale to go over may take longer. There are several transportations options available:

  • A limited number of Waypoints are available several of which are not accessible during events
  • Teleporters allow point to point movements. These do require a Jade Bot with power core and charge; most have a battery nearby. Not all teleporters are available all the times. During the start of the meta event most are offline and will trigger events.
  • Raptor Taxi at various locations throughout the city allow you to mount a Raptor which will auto navigate to another location.
  • Zip Line allow you to cross elevations throughout Cantha.
  • Springer with High Vault or Skyscale does allow you to navigate the height but the use of ledges is required to traverse the different levels.
  • Stairs tried and true, useful for Raptor but also as platforms for Springer and Skyscale

Navigation map[edit]

To facilitate navigation the following map roughly shows elevation and means of transportation.

Legend:

  • Coloured Areas. Note that there are variations within the area and not all areas of the same colour have the same height.
    • Green is (at least) one springer vault from ground level
    • Red (at least) one springer vault above green. When moving around a red area on ground level walking around is typically faster than going over.
    • Yellow areas show underpasses typically at ground level.
  • Blue arrows are Zip Lines point upward
  • Yellow arrows are stairs the ground level start point has a yellow G from there nearby arrow form a rough path up.
  • The red T marks a teleporter with its the name.

Navigation map 2[edit]

To facilitate navigation the following map shows Stairs, Zip Lines and Teleporters in clear lines and symbols.
